I think I’m almost done showing you the items I used for Jamie’s Bridal Shower. Today I’m going to show you how I made some small faux drawers. They even fooled Jamie. She asked me where I got the little drawers, and I told her I made them. I’m not sure she believed me at first.
I went through my “stash” and found this narrow very long piece of luan. I cut it into equal pieces on the compound miter saw.
I set my pieces up and used Gorilla Wood glue and Scotch Blue Painter’s Tape to hold the pieces together.
I put another piece on the bottom. I sanded the rough edges. I find the best way to sand some items is to keep the sandpaper stationary and move the item around. By keeping the sandpaper in one place and sliding the little “drawer” around, it helped to really smooth out the edges.
I used a sample cream colored paint. But I wanted to add a little more oomph.
I did a “dry brush” technique with my Mythic Paint.
Then I added some cute little knobs to make them look like drawers. After this picture was taken, I did a little more cream colored paint to “wash out” the blue a little.
This is how they were used at the shower. They held the wrapped utensils.
I used one of the faux drawers to draw my winner for the Reader’s Choice giveaway.
A couple of months ago, I won a giveaway!
I decided to get a present for the newlyweds! Seemed like a no-brainer to me. I haven’t been able to blog about it until I gave it to Jamie and Andy at the shower. Isn’t it awesome?! You really should check out the wonderful signs at Ramsign. Thank You Cassie and Ramsign!
I love to win giveaways! It’s been a while for me, have YOU won anything lately?
